Adobe Media Encoder CS6 (6.0.1) update available

Today, the Adobe Media Encoder CS6 (6.0.1) update was released.

If Adobe Application Manager hasn’t already told you about this, go ahead and check for new updates by choosing Help > Updates. The best way to check for updates is by closing all Adobe applications other than Adobe Bridge, and choosing Help > Updates in Adobe Bridge; this ensures that all processes related to Adobe video applications have been quit and can be updated safely.

Ideally, you should install the updates automatically by choosing Help > Updates, but you can also directly download the update packages from the download page for Mac OS or Windows by choosing the “Adobe Media Encoder CS6.0.1” update for your operating system.

For information about updates for other Adobe professional video applications, see this page.

If you have difficulty with this update, please bring questions and issues to the Adobe Media Encoder forum. Don’t ask questions in the comments on this blog post, which fewer people will see.

features added or changed in this update

  • Added encoding presets with additional bit-rate settings for XDCAM HD.
  • Enabled “smart rendering” and added a setting to the Video tab of the MXF OP1a exporters to enable or disable smart rendering for these formats.

    Full use of this feature also requires the Premiere Pro CS6 (6.0.1) update.

bugs fixed in this update

  • Some encoding presets and codecs (MPEG-2, Dolby AC3) were missing from Adobe Media Encoder if activated using a yearly Creative Cloud Membership subscription license.
  • Canon 5D Mark III files were imported and interpreted using the Rec. 601 color space instead of the correct Rec. 709 color space.
  • NTSC MXF OP1a files that were exported with drop-frame timecode had video data that tagged as non-drop-frame.
  • In some cases, 23.976fps H.264 output had incorrect video duration, causing audio and video to be out of synch.
  • Colors shifted in some H.264 and MPEG-2 output.
  • Exporting a WMV file failed in some cases, and in some cases caused audio and video to be out of synch.
  • Some multiplexed H.264 Blu-Ray files caused faulty Blu-Ray Discs in Encore.
  • Import of some files caused the application to hang or took an extremely long time to complete.
  • Some QuickTime files were imported with the wrong field order.
  • Some additional causes of crashes were fixed.
